Running around even though I'm early

I'm supposed to be catching a bus going from Madrid to Porto in 30 minutes but I can't tell where to go because the monitors don't show the gates where each of the busses depart and I don't know enough Spanish to ask if anyone knows which gate.

I asked some bus driver with "porto?", he told me to go to the other side. I went to the other side and didn't see anything obvious so I was walking around the outside of the building in the light rain and came back. Finally I asked some lady who has bags with her about Porto and she says, yes, wait here.

So I'm sitting on the bench next to her. We're the only 2 people so far. The bus isn't here yet. I was worried because the ticket says boarding closes 30 min before departure. It's now less than 30 min before departure.

I guess either she's right or we both miss the bus :)

It should be tougher in South America. It is hard to meet a person speaking English. Maybe, it is easier to find a Korean living there.

They even don't understand coffee, which they say cafe. I couldn't believe it.
The most difficult thing - how to take a bus or share taxi with other people.
Be prepared.
